DARK­TRACE

Forbes - - Bezos Unbou -

The band of Cam­bridge-ed­u­cated math­e­ma­ti­cians and former in­tel­li­gence o cers at Dark­trace, a cy­ber­se­cu­rity firm, take in­spi­ra­tion from an un­usual source: bi­ol­ogy. The hu­man im­mune sys­tem, ex­plains CEO and co­founder Nicole Ea­gan, has an “in­nate sense of self and not-self” and is able to iden­tify and de­stroy in­trud­ing cells. Dark­trace works with sim­i­lar logic. Its AI an­a­lyzes user be­hav­ior to tell who be­longs and who doesn’t. By track­ing ab­nor­mal be­hav­ior in­stead of watch­ing for spe­cific threats, Dark­trace’s sys­tem can pro­tect against at­tacks that come out of the blue or spot when users may be go­ing rogue. — Chris­tian Krez­nar
